Merritt's class took a field trip this week to the Downtown Airport where most private planes land and are hangered. A sweet dad from last year's class invited the class for a repeat field trip. We had a great time getting up close and personal with a plane! We even got to tour the control tower! Merritt was most fascinated by the TV in the control tower that had a security camera aimed at the entrance to the tower. When we left I pointed out the camera. She stood there waving to Mr. Les, the tower operator. She was so thrilled when she heard his voice over the intercom say, "Good-bye!" We laughed all the way to the bus! As we boarded the bus to head back to the school, Merritt looked up at me and said, "I thought we were going to fly the plane!" Isn't sweet childhood innocence grand?
